beginning today for the man nominated to be the next secretary of state, senator john kerry is slated to go to the committee. it is the panel he chaired since 2009. kerry had not expected to draw that much resistance. let's put him if a little perspective politically. kerry served as president obama's mock debate partner during his re-election campaign. but he has pressured the administration at times urging the white house last year to speed up with the draul of u.s. troops from afghanistan. kerry was also influential in the administration's decision to intervene in libya. in case you forgot from his 2004 bid for the white house, he is one of the wealthiest members of the senate. he and wife teresa, heir to the heinz ketchup fortune are worth $180 million with a wide range of investments. in a letter to the state department legal adviser, kerry said he will divest any holdings that could be a conflict of interest within 90 days of being confirmed. he'll be introduced to day about the the current secretary hillary clinton. >>> today's appearance expected to take on a much different tone tha

of transition for american foreign policy as senator john kerry faces a high-stakes job interview to be the secretary of state. kerry's confirmation hearings were rather cordial hosted by the foreign relations committee which he's led for the past four years. but it was an unexpected moment when the hearings were interrupted by a protester that offered perhaps the most telling revelation about the man and the moment. >> i'm tired of my friends dying. i don't know if they're going to be alive the next day. >> when i first came to washington and testified, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about. people measure what we do. >> kerry's confirmation hearing today comes a day after secretary hillary clinton stood her ground offering a robust defense of her handling of those attacks in benghazi that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. at wednesday's long-awaited hearings on benghazi, clinton took responsibility for security lapses but that obviously was not go
the troops have left. >> karen, hillary's hearing comes the day before john kerry is supposed to begin hearings as secretary of state. "the economist," writes a tone of cool detachment has been his foreign policy hallmark, present but not deeply involved. how much do you think john kerry in the wake of this foreign policy discussion that, let's be honest, is not often had. we focus a lot on domestic affairs. there's not been a lot of pressure, i think, on the president to verbalize what he wants to do as far as america's role in the national stage. how much of this hearing is going to filter through to john kerry's hearing to sort of give us an outline? >> i think absolutely in kerry's hearing, again, this is going to be more aimed at president obama to try to get kerry on the record with some commitments about particularly iran and some of the other conflicts around the world. i think one of the reasons, and this has been talked about, that the president likes john kerry and his position and likes chuck hagel, if we're talking about iran, talking about algeria, talking about a fragile
, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give president obama a second chance. we begin with the obama party is campaign to ban assault weapons. they not only want to ban assault weapons but certain handouts. for more on what the democrats are trying to do to our second amendment rights, we bring in shannon bream. reporter: senator dianne feinstein acknowledges that it will be an uphill battle. this new measure would ban the sale and manufacture and transfer and importation of 157 specific garments, along with a broader group of other guns that will meet at a lower threshold for being classified as an assault weapon is the sale and transfer and gifting of anything classified as an assault weapon. >> no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to try up the supply of these weapons over time. therefore there is no sunset on
you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are
veteran john kerry on top to be america's top diplomat. the senate foreign relations committee is holding a hearing on the nomination to become secretary of state. kerry talked about how his military experience in vietnam has shaped his views. >> i want all of us to keep in our minds as i think we do the extraordinary men and women in uniform who are on the front lines even as we meet here today. the troops at war who helped protect america i can pledge to you that as a veteran of war i will always carry the consequence for our decisions in my mind and be grateful that we have such extraordinary people to back us up. >> want to bring in our foreign affairs correspondent. kerry it seems like is ready made for the job. this is something where he got the nod after you had susan rice withdrawing her own nomination from consideration. this is someone who has wanted something more than a senate seat for quite some time. >> yes he has. when you say ta made for the job. president assad of syria told me and that is kind of the tone that we have had. he has rubbed shoulders, talked with, influenced
in afghanistan. >>> also happening now, senator john kerry appears before the commission to be next secretary of state. he received bipartisan support for the committee. both secretary of state clinton and senator john mccain praised kerry. he is expected to be confirmed by the full senate. >>> new at 11:00, senator dianne feinstein banning a bill on semi assault rifles and ammunition clips nationwide. the bill strengthened her 1994 ban by banning the sale and manufacturing of 150 guns, including rifles and shotguns fitted for detachable magazines. the measure would not cover weapons people already own as well as hunting and sport and antique and disabled weapons. the senator says the goal is to quote, dry up the supply of the weapons over time. >> together, we are introducing legislation to help end the mass shootings that have devastated countless families and terrorized communities. >> feinstein got in involved in gun control when supervisor harvey milk was killed by former superior dan white. >>> and back in california, job creation and budget concerns. that is what jerry brown spoke abou
. >> not pretty in deed. let's look at other news. john kerry has appeared before the senate foreign relations committee to seek confirmation as the next american secretary of state. he said he would do everything in his power to build on hillary clinton's record and president obama's addition. he's expected to be confirmed. the government of yemen says a senior leader of the local branch of al qaeda has died of wounds received last a member. it has not been confirmed by his group and previous reports of his death have proved to be false. this time, however, both the yemen state news agency and a diplomat at the embassy in washington have announced the news. the u.n. has launched an investigation into civilian deaths from from strikes in a number of countries including somalia, pakistan, afghanistan, and yemen. the inquiry will look at 25 separate from strikes including a u.s. attack in pakistan in 2011 where up to 40 civilians are reported to have been killed. in syria today, war planes continued to bomb rubble-held areas near the capital as president assad was shown on television and attendi

disagree with. i also would suggest, once senator kerry gets confirmed for secretary of state, that he go to the region in the nearest possible time frame. he knows all the leaders there. he's known bibi netanyahu for 25 years, has a very close relationship with him, among others. and that in a nearer time frame after that, president obama go to the region, including israel, and take his own measure of the situation. it's pa reset moment, i think, for the region with israel as a player in the region, and for our policy to the region. >> i want to talk to you. you mentioned john kerry, the incoming secretary of state. he has called for a freezing of settlements, but he's also called for a two-state solution. how does he go to israel, netanyahu elected, at least in part, with the strong support of the right, who does not want that. how does john kerry go to israel, and to your point say, look, your future as a jewish democracy depends on you changing or breaking with some of the people who got you elected. how do you make that case? put yourself in his shoes. >> i wouldn't presume to tell b
